Fourth Best Sports City in North America

The Toronto Star recently ranked the "Best Sport Cities" in North America (excluding Mexico) and our beloved city of Philadelphia came in fourth. Check out the (very small) map:

Indianapolis came in first, Boston in second (bleh) and Vancouver in third. This list considered 37 cities - the requirement was that a city have at least two major sports teams (the Canadian Football League counted). The best cities were determined by:

a.) Winning percentage by teams since 2000.

b.) Bonus points (I'm not sure what the exact methodology was) for teams that made the playoffs and/or won championships.

These are some interesting results. Your thoughts...
